Beauty in Devastation–Again


The worst Vermont Flooding in 100 Years

Homes washed away, lives wrecked, farmland torn asunder, yet beauty remains. Hurricane Irene’s damage to Vermont is yet unmeasured to the accountants, insurance companies and cash-strapped FEMA. Six years after Katrina, we are reminded again that it’s the people who feel the measure of the hurricane’s power.

  1. “It’s the people who feel the measure…” I’d like to add that it’s the people who are heading into extinction, but we are becoming extinct as a species so much slower than the creatures in those waters, who fly across the sky, and look at us from hidden places. In the evenings I go out at dusk and I don’t hear the joy of everyone singing like I used to, some 40 years ago, and I don’t see the lightning bugs and the bats flying like crazy.
    I like to think of them as my neighbors, too. And this planet will be lonely indeed, when in the evenings, it is completely silent…
